Steps to Enrollment



The steps to becoming a Bethlehem student are designed to make an incoming freshman feel a part of the community from the very beginning. Whether it's Sports Night, our Open House, or a shadow day, Bethlehem invites everyone to come see what we are about.

Shadow Day 

Students are invited to participate in a shadow day where they can see what it's really like to be a Bethlehem student. During a shadow experience, prospective students will be able to attend classes with a current student, interact with the teachers and staff, and discover what being a member of the Bethlehem family is all about. Shadows are welcome at almost any time but they must be scheduled in advance. Contact our Director of Admissions, Kate Johnson, at 502-348-8594 or kjohnson@bethlehemhigh.org, to schedule a shadow day. Please notify your student's current school about the shadow visit, and allow 24 hours notice when making the arrangements to allow for the best possible shadow experience. Additional details about the shadow experience:
 
  • Shadow students are welcome September thru mid-December and January thru mid-May. We do not schedule shadow days during finals week.
  • The shadow day begins at 8:05 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. We ask that prospective students be here on time so as to be able to experience a full day at Bethlehem.
  • When shadow students arrive, they should report to the office to meet the Admissions Director and their host student.
  • Lunch will be provided for visiting students; however, you are also welcome to bring your lunch if you prefer.
  • Shadow students are not allowed to wear jeans with holes or shorts.
 

The High School Placement Test


The Placement Test is a standardized test given to all students who are interested in attending a Catholic High School.  It is administered each year on a Saturday in December and in January. This test helps us determine the most appropriate course work and academic path for meeting the needs of individual students. The placement test is only one of several tools used for academic placement.  If you missed the Placement Test, don't worry! You can still become a member of the Bethlehem High School Class of 2023! Call Kate Johnson, Director of Admissions, at 502-348-8594 x 204 for more information about your future at Bethlehem!
